I'm Ready For My Close-Up/Electric Sheep - Peter Watkins's Punishment Park


Published January 20, 2012


Virginie Selavy talks to William Fowler, archive curator at the BFI National Archive, about Peter Watkins's uncompromising pseudo-documentary Punishment Park (1971) in relation to the rest of his work, in particular The War Game (1965), the influence of the 1969 Chicago Seven trial and the 1970 Kent State Shootings on the film, the improvisatory techniques used and the critique of the media's pretension to present âobjective truthâ.
